The ITF has weighed in on the weekend vote by the Greek people, who have rejected efforts by financial and corporate interests to balance their books by impoverishing workers and communities and transferring further public wealth into private hands.
The words of General Secretary Steve Cotton take on special meaning for Canadians heading for the polls this fall to choose the people and the policies that will move our country forward.
“Workers and pensioners are deeply concerned about their jobs, their pensions and their future, especially as they have already had to pay the price of an irresponsible economic monetary system,” Cotton says. “(We need) to find a solution based on an investment plan for growth that avoids once again shifting all of the burden of this crisis onto workers and pensioners.”
